Chef Winston Blick has been cooking up more than delicious fare at Clementine, the Hamilton restaurant he owns with his wife Cristin Dadant. He’s planning to open a greengrocer market—tentatively called The Green Onion—in a nearby storefront on Harford Road.
I ran into the chef yesterday while I was having lunch at Clementine (the mushroom salad was excellent). He’s envisioning a market where he can sell local farmers’ produce, fresh eggs, products from his charcuterie operation, pâtes, cheeses, honey from a beekeeper two blocks away, and a bakery to showcase the wonderful desserts that his mother makes (they’re all good, but I’m a big fan of mom’s coconut cake).
Obviously, it’s a plan in the works. The chef is thinking about a fall opening but might wait until spring. It sounds like a great addition to the neighborhood—and for the foodie community at large!
